Follow Friday: @AlisonLeiby


A lot of Twitter users take to the platform to test out their latest jokes and quips, but certain people truly excel at making us laugh with the available characters and constraints. With the Internet being such a big place, it can be difficult to find the comedians most worthy of your RTs and favs. Each Friday we feature one person whose consistent short-form online humor deserves your attention and to be on your Twitter feed.

This week, we’re highlighting the Twitter feed of New York-based comedian Alison Leiby. The standup and writer is the co-author of two parody ebooks, Marry Smart…OR DIE and Lean Over: Women, Work, and Women’s Work, with Alyssa Wolff. She also hosts the monthly storytelling show It’s a Long Story at UCB. Check out some of her best tweets below:
